National Premiere

Three young sisters are separated by the eruption of the great Fogo, in Cape Verde. Pedro Costa builds a penetrating portrait of these women (interpreted by singers Elizabeth Pinard, Alice Costa and Karyna Gomes) whose faces the eruption radiates in their poignant singing: one day we will know why we live and why we suffer.

Pedro Costa will be present.

[In the same program will be screened Jean-Luc Godard's last film, Trailer of the Film That Will Never Exist: "Phony Wars", also premiered in Cannes and Straub-Huillet's Einleitung zu Arnold Schönbergs Begleitmusik zu einer Lichtspielscene. And also the launch of the Portuguese edition of Jacques Rancière's book Pedro Costa – Les Chambres du cinéaste.]

At the end of the session there will be a conversation between Víctor Erice and Pedro Costa.
